The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association recently held a series of candidate interviews for those candidates seeking election for various offices. During the interview process, Josh Stein demonstrated why his experience and values make him uniquely qualified to represent the voters of North Carolina.

Josh Stein has proven to the North Carolina PBA that he is committed to making strong, effective law enforcement a priority in his campaign. Stein has served as Senior Deputy Attorney General as well as a member of the state Senate. As Senior Deputy Attorney General, Josh brought and successfully resolved major cases against predatory lenders; helped run the payday lenders charging loan-shark interest rates out of North Carolina, drafted and helped enact legislation to combat identity theft, abusive telemarketing, and predatory lending; and worked to improve safety features on Facebook and MySpace to protect kids from sexual predators. In the Senate, Josh worked to enhance protections for victims of domestic violence; expand the DNA database to take more violent criminals off the street; ban stalking through use of GPS tracking devices; and strengthen our DWI laws to keep more drunk drivers off the road. His experience will serve him and the citizens of North Carolina well as the next Attorney General.

The North Carolina PBA is proud to put our support behind Josh and to help elect him as our next Attorney General. A vote for Josh is a vote for the men and women of law enforcement and the citizens they serve."

In response to egregious continued efforts to interfere with the efforts of Greenville police officers to enforce state and local law and to protect the citizens of Greenville, several of those police officers have filed a lawsuit today against Kandie Smith individually and in her official capacity as a member of the City Council of Greenville for tortious interference with their contracts of employment and obstruction of justice, among other causes of action. North Carolina PBA and the local PBA membership stand with these Greenville officers as they challenge the improper actions of Ms. Smith.
